    tiger stripes

    It's caused by the boards, lets face it, you never get it on float and set work. If you look a the grey side of the board in the right light, you can see the ripples in the board. On the white side, its harder too see, but the ripples are there......that's my theory anyway.

    I have no idea... Please help

    Might be the salt that has pushed the render off the wall. If the property is right on the sea front as you say, the wind and spray will have penetrated the brick work over many years. If it is a salt problem, it only pushes it off as it dries out, while it's ''damp'' (fook me did I just say...

Good gear, and looks better...

    rising damp

    You are not too bright, I did not say damp does not exist, what I said is, it cannot rise as you seem to think. Also you seem to be getting confused with damp, rising damp, and salt damp.
